Duty Knife as a Backup Weapon

Many Law Enforcement officers carry at least one knife on their person when on duty. In addition to the variety of utility functions a duty knife can perform, most officers carry a knife with intent to use it as a last-ditch survival weapon or weapon retention tool. Unlike other weapons officers carry, many agencies do not have a policy regarding knives. Consequently the carry, deployment and defensive use of a knife is rarely trained. 

Day One of this course is an Operator Certification covering the fundamentals of using a knife as a backup weapon. We do case studies into several documented situations where police officers have used knives to save their lives, and educate attendees as to the pros and cons of the various types of knives that are available on the market. 

Day Two is an Instructor Certification, reemphasizing the techniques and tactics of Day One to an Instructor level and continuing with some additional drills and techniques that may be incorporated into the lesson plan. 

Over the course of both days we will cover time-proven techniques and tactics adapted for relevant use by modern day Law Enforcement, while addressing objectively reasonable application of force. The focus will be on weapon deployment under stress in both standing and ground positions, along with simple gross-motor skills for using a knife in lethal and less lethal application. We also provide Instructor Candidates with a sample department policy  that provides a reference and starting point for those looking to integrate a knife policy into their organization. 

EQUIPMENT: Training knives will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. Please wear comfortable training clothes. We recommend bringing your tactical loadout or duty gear to utilize for some of the drills. A training gun (Blue Gun or similar) that fits your duty holster is recommended.  

*Please do not bring live blades or firearms into the training area.
